HUNT FOR COP MURDER SUSPECT: Search for man without a past.
NATHAN Coleman was a man with no past until he arrived in England and married in 1997.
The murder suspect created an identity with a British driving licence and national insurance number.
He was claiming housing benefit and job seekers' allowance, had a GP and a licence as a nightclub bouncer. He also has a marriage certificate and divorce papers.
But there the paper trail on Britain's most wanted man goes cold.
Coleman claimed he had lived in Florida. He told those trying to arrest him he was born in Canada and a recording of his arrest reveals a transatlantic accent.
But no trace of Nathan Wayne Coleman has been found on the North American continent, despite the best efforts of Interpol and the FBI.
The accuracy of his shooting and the discovery of gun equipment at his flat suggest experience in the armed forces.
But Det Supt Chris Gregg, leading the hunt for PC Ian Broadhurst's killer, said yesterday: "We have nothing to suggest Coleman has a military background. We know little about him."
Denise Dunn, the divorcee he married, described Coleman as a fitness enthusiast with an interest in martial arts.
Her first husband Michael Horsley, who visited their two children, said Coleman never unpacked his clothes from a suitcase, as if he was ready to bale out at any time.
